Wesley's Notes for Exodus 37:10


37:10 Observe how much the dispensation of the gospel exceeds that of the law. Tho' here was a table furnished, it was only with shew - bread, bread to be looked upon, not to be fed upon, while it was on the table, and afterwards only by the priests: but to the table Christ has spread in the new covenant all good Christians are invited guests, and to them it is said, Eat, O friends, come eat of my bread. What the law gave but a sight of at a distance, the gospel gives the enjoyment of.

    The reference to Snuffers and Snuffdishes in Verse: 23. Does this imply that there was tobacco usage as we know it today. Not a smoker but curious about the usage of these items.
